Default Raab ventilating fan

Contemporary images showing hot-air engines at their heydays are rare.
Enjoy the mounting of a Raab ventilating fan in 1907.

Let's hope the attachment will work.

You might want to take a closer look at the same fan in action. The vast majority of these Raab fans were marketed in Asia as Jost fans by the Jost company based in Bombay, India. This Art Nouveau style is in my opinion the most beautiful of all Jost/Raab hot air fans. Note the ring and pinion gear with the ring gear inset in the flywheel.
